International Megan’s Law (AGAIN)

Again Congressman Chris Smith has submitted “International Megan’s Law.”  Congressman Smith has made a career of HARSH Sex Offender legislation.  [This from a man who does not even live in NJ.  Comgressman Smith lives in Virginia and RENTS an Apartment in NJ]

Congressman Smith has been a representative of the 4th  Congressional District in NJ since 1981 and is extremely close with the Kanka’s – Megan’s parents.  In my opinion, he mentored Richard Kanka for his bid for NJ Senate in the 14th District.  Not only did Richard Kanka lose his bid for NJ Senator, he lost big in Hamilton – his home town.  Congressman Smith should pay attention.
